The ocean does not just serve as habitat for the seafoods that we love to eat – it also provides us with one of nature’s richest source of iodine: kelp.
Kelp or seaweeds offer a lot of benefits to your health. For years now, kelp and other varieties of sea vegetables serve as a main ingredient in Japanese recipes. Aside from being an excellent source of iodine, kelp contains vitamin K, folate, magnesium, calcium, iron and trytophan.
New scientific research suggests that seaweed might just be the answer to a great many health and nutrition questions.
